Thermographic Imaging is the inspection and assessment of abnormal temperatures in your electrical equipment.
These high temperatures can be caused by loose connections, overloading and unbalanced loading, poor ventilation, incorrectly mounted components and induced currents in power systems.
Problems of this nature will only become worse the longer they remain undetected and will likely cause a failure or potentially a fire situation. For more information on this topic, read our blog post about how much a loose wire can cost your business.
We use specialized thermal cameras to inspect your electrical equipment and machinery that can detect and capture the exact point of high temperature.
Most importantly, this testing can be done without having to switch off your equipment or disturb your operations, so it is a cost effective method of preventative maintenance.
We have a duty of care to rectify any potentially dangerous situation with your electrical equipment. If we find a hot spot in your system that can be easily rectified without causing much delay, we will try to address it the same day.
For example, a loose connection in a current-carrying conductor could be causing excessive heat and could lead to arcing or a fire situation.
This could simply be either tightened up or re-terminated during our survey visit to rectify immediately and remove any causes of concern for you.
Once our Thermographic Imaging survey has been completed we will produce a detailed full inspection report for your system.
This will include photographs with comments for every potential defect or issue found, and be prepared in PDF format that can be sent via email or on a CD to keep for your records.
If any defects are found we will be more than happy to provide a free quotation to quickly attend and resolve any issues that were located.
